I'm working on a laser cutting project where I have to cut out using an RGB red line at the size of 0.001 in. I used Image trace to make an outline of the image, but I can't change the color to RGB red, or the thickness of the outline. I need it to be RGB with a 0.001 in thickness, or the laser cutter will not cut it out.

This is the image I want to make an outline of This is the outcome of the outline option in Image Trace

    That's not an "outline" that is a series of shapes with fills. If you want strokes, you'll have to do something different.
